Great climb! sustained and very worthwhile. Start on the obvious line of bolts to the left of Little Miss and Warriors Way. Overall it doesnt seem as serious as some of the other routes on Whitesides, but it does have its moments. Oh, and when your on the first or third pitch and look up, dont be too intimidated, all of that overhanging rock up there really isnt as hard as it looks...

First roof seemed harder than thin crux. 12 C section is less than vertical. 12 A section involved a bit of trick climbing. Up high, the climbing is reasonable. Take care at the last crux. No fall areas on positive holds, with the possible exception of the last crux. Limited natural gear. A few cams 1/2 to 3 inch and a medium nut or two.
Best route I've done in the east. Bouldery cruxes, with a little bit of run out and great exposure. Had to work the two 5.12 pitches crux moves, but they are well protected. Could be done as a sport route if you don't mind big whippers. Enjoyable hard climbing with the best rock quality I've seen at Whitesides of the 6 routes I've done there. *Note* This route has good belay anchors!
